    Gertrude Kate BENNETT was born in St Albans in 1881 to parents William George BENNETT and Ellen Laura née WADDELL.

    She is with her parents in the 1891 census living in Victoria Road, St Albans. (1115/51/26)

    Ten years later, the 19-year-old Gertrude is living at 77 Victoria Street (a later name for Victoria Road) in St Albans, still with her parents and siblings. (1312/10/11)

    After that, nothing! Nada. Zippo. Zilch.

    I have looked for her in 1911 - nope.
    I have looked for a marriage in Hertfordshire - nope.
    I have looked for a local death - nope.

    If anyone is able to discover what happened to Gertrude, I would be grateful. :)

    Thank you.
